So I'm driving today and the temp gauge is buried in the red zone and I smell burning plastic. I am a block my house and pull in, the fan motor seized and burned up badddddd. Well the thing overheated and I know fo sho I need a new one. Is it possible to drive at any speed without the fan or do I have to be going 45 mph for the fan to be not needed?

I wouldn't risk driving it without a fan especially this time of year - summer heat. It's going to run hot regardless of your speed if you drive it for any distance or amount of time without a fan.

You can get a new one from Jason for around $140 or just find a used one at the junk yard. There's probably somebody here that has one sitting around that would sell it to you for a reasonable price.

look on car-part, and call a few yards.

Just make sure your fan harness isn't fried as well, or you will need to do some wire replacement and connector replacement as well.

the fan was changed in 96, so y ou need a 96/97 fan. i think you need to specify whether you have A/C as well

Not too sure about that.I had a 96 parts car here and the fan Part number was exact to the one on my 95.
